Add a tech preview preview of the the upcoming version of Java (OpenJDK8) to 
Fedora 19.

== Detailed description ==
The current Java implementation in Fedora comes from OpenJDK.

Java 8 (and OpenJDK8) are tentatively scheduled for release in September 2013. 
Fedora 19 will most likely be out just a few months before that, and is 
therefore positioned to receive a tech preview version of the latest OpenJDK8
